Thank-you for taking the time to view my site for
" Diesel " your comments will be vetted and listed in due course...
|One of the occasions I thought this was her last trip
In this photo Diesel had been ill for
a few days ..not eating....my intentions..if she didnt pull through..the inevitable.even
after a trip to the vets they could not find anything wrong.....however she
was to recover and manage another 2 years.......just by changing her
diet.......A lot of people would have gave upon her not me I
knew she had more to do and see in her lifetime....I hope I
can keep her dreams alive.....
Aw sorry to hear about Diesel, It's always difficult to make "that" call and say goodbye to companion who was always
there no matter what was happening in your life.
That's always the thing about dogs, they always love you no matter who
you are or what sort of a day you have had.
You must have some happy memories of your time together and of course some
Awwwwww thats so sad Alexander, i know people will say its a dog but they are part of your family and i'm very sorry
for your loss. Good to see you back

Sorry to hear of your loss. A pet becomes one of the family. My advice is to get another puppy as soon as possible. Time
is a great healer.
Diesel and I walked many times down to the shore at Clynder.........if
you see me walking Im recollecting all the happy times spent
walking this route..I may look upset , Im just remembering the
good times.... Alexander

So sorry to hear about your loss, we lossed our family pet last year and we still miss him.
sorry to hear of your loss I am sure that you have many happy memories of Diesel, concentrate on those I am sure that
it will help a little. Keith
Know exactly what your feeling Alex. Had to make the same decision 10 years ago over our Jenny a Border Collie cross
and it still hurts. My most treasured thought was from a time when the wife was out walking her and they heard fast approaching
footsteps from behind. As they turned a youth was upon them with his hands raised. Our Jen leapt at him pinning him up against
a fence and saved the day. What a dog, what a heroine. The only trouble was, she would bare her teeth at me if I put my arms
around the wife. Often wonder how many kids we would have finished up with if it wasn't for her. :¬)
This touched my heart and reminded me of when my best pal Benji (Doberman/Labrador) left me after 15 years. He gave me
many hours of love and devotion yet never asked for more than I gave him so I know how you are feeling at this time. Trust
me although you will never replace him somewhere there is another pal waiting to follow you on your many walks around your
Very sorry to hear of your loss Alexander.
You have my depest sympathy
So sorry to read of your loss. Many of us can relate to it - I still miss Sadie, our Goldie, after nearly 8 years. You
kind of wonder at times why we put ourselves through it - we know we're probably going to outlive them and have to go through
this grief. But the memories (and the photos...)make it all worthwhile, don't they?
Please accept my sympathies, I know how you must feel, as I have recently lost my pal of eighteen and half years, enjoyed
your pictures of Diesel. Ced.

Deepest sympathy from a fellow GSD owner.I,ve had dogs all my life and my current dog is 5 years old.It never gets easier
when the time comes to say goodbye to an old friend but I,m sure the memories will last forever.

I'm so sorry to hear about losing Diesel. No words can help in your grief. Always remember Diesel with
happiness not sadness, it does help a little.
She had a rich, full life with a family who loved her. You can do no more
for Diesel than honour the memory of your time together and how all your lives were a little richer for knowing and liveing
Alexander, as a Shepherd 'owner' myself, I just wanted to say sorry for the loss of your friend.
Awful sad news Alexander.
A true loyal friend lost.

Know exactly what you are going through you have my deepest sympathy, my thoughts are with you.
Sorry for your loss Alex, I know exactly how it feels (I had to do the same for mine about 2 years ago, and it still
hurts if I think too deeply about it). You have to know that you did the best thing for Diesel to alleviate the suffering
he would otherwise have gone through and in time you'll remember him as he was in the good times of his life instead of the
final moments, but you never ever forget them.
You have my deepest sympathy.
I see the site's coming along well in the last few days Alex, and you've added some great photo's of Diesel to
remember her by. Alan
Dear Alexander, I was sorry to read your news and send my sympathy to you in what must seem very empty days at the moment.
This ‘last call’ is the one thing we owe to our beloved companion dogs at the end, they can’t do it themselves,
and they trust us to know what is right. I had to make the same decision myself several years ago now, when my GSD “Astra”
was also 13 years old. I know you’ll have lots of memories of Diesel & I’m sure you have many photos to remember
a very special friend.
So sorry to hear your news my brother had to make the same decision yesterday for his Alsation Misty so lets think of
them running free together some where beautiful and free of pain as she was in pain so chin up mate my thoughts are with you
Hope this short poem might help.
Don't mourn for me now dad
You were with me when I arrived and with me at the
We shared the joy of living and were always the best of friends
When you were there to talk to me I was there to
It was'nt always joy and light that made our eye's just glisten
I went the way I wanted to, quite fast, no pain,
I'm sorry it was a shock for you
now there is you not us.

Sorry to hear about Diesel. You will have some great memories though.
Hopefully the weather will pick up a bit
in the Highlands and you will have a great summer with the camera.
All the best
So sorry to hear about the loss of your Diesel. They really are such great friends and companions ..it
is such a blow when we have to say goodbye. I am sure that you have loads of happy memories (and photos) and that they will
help you in the times ahead. I always feel very sorry for those people who say "it was just a dog "!...they have NO IDEA of
the joy given !
all the best !
i feel for you losing your companion, know how you feel x
Sorry for your loss. What a wonderful life he must have had with you; the freedom to roam those beautiful mountains you
photograph so perfectly.

so sorry to hear of your loss of Diesel just visited your tribute to her and she is a wonderful looking dog, its so difficult
losing a pet as the love off them is unconditional, and the fun and laughter they bring is second to none, In time you will
be able to look back on your photos and smile when your remember the happy times you both shared together, nobody can take
them memories away.
I agree, the site is a lovely tribute & I do hope that working on it helps you in these dark days.
Lovely big dog - sorry to see her go - A Big dog that would'nt touch you and always happy to see you
What a wonderful tribute to your faithful old friend.
I know it's early days yet, but there are always many old
dogs who's owners have died and they are always the dogs who find it hard to get a new home - people always want puppies.
Perhaps you may, in time, feel able to give a home to an older dog.
They love us unconditionally. You will see Diesel again someday. He will be wagging his tail and feeling just fine
the day you meet again!
Keep the chin up Al! Lovely pics, where's the one you took of her in the snow?
See you soon buddy! Karenso x
